2. Joe Schoen will make moves to improve the squad
In two offseasons, we have watched Schoen turn the Giants from one of the worst teams in the NFL to a playoff contender. This is already more than Gettleman did for the Giants in five years and at this rate, it seems like the Giants are moving in the right direction.
We've seen Schoen address important needs on both sides of the ball, so its' only expected that he continues to do so during the season. Whether it be signing Justin Pugh, La'el Collins, or edge depth, Schoen is likely going to make a move or two soon. Signing these guys won't move the needle much for New York, but there's no doubt that it will help out, especially if he brings in Pugh or Collins.
Even if a big-time player becomes available via trade, we're hopeful that Schoen at least considers making a move to bring them in. Adding a stud player on either side of the ball could go a long way in helping the Giants push their way back into the playoffs.
This can also apply to holding players accountable. For example, if Evan Neal continues to play poorly, Schoen can sign Collins to potentially replace Neal at right tackle. Regardless, we hope to see the Giants be active in free agency and the trade market - they have the assets and cap flexibility to make a move or two in order to improve their playoff odds.
